The Nigerian government has warned against planned protests to demand justice for victims of a shooting during peaceful demonstrations in Lagos last year. This, Al Jazeera reports after activists called on social media for new protests on Saturday after a judicial panel authorised the reopening of the city’s Lekki toll gate, where security forces shot at peaceful protesters on October 20. Nigeria’s Information Minister said on Thursday that peaceful protests were a constitutional right but warned of the risk that the upcoming rallies could be “hijacked by hoodlums”, and descend into violence in the name of justice.
